This Exquisite Forest by Chris Milk and Aaron Koblin is an online collaborative art experiment presented by Google and Tate Modern. The project lets users create short animations that build off one another as they explore a specific theme.
Taking a series of short animation sequences created by artists represented in Tate’s collection as the starting point, users of the website and visitors to the installation are invited to draw and animate new sequences and thus continue the ‘seeds’ begun by the artists.
As more sequences are added, the videos dynamically branch out and evolve, forming multiple new visual narratives.
The Making Of:
It can be accessed via the website exquisiteforest.com and through a physical installation at Tate Modern from July 23, 2012.
